The trio in the first clip was a regular working group with Thomas alternating with Jimmy Gourley. They recorded a sensational album for Dreyfus, in 1968 or possibly earlier, titled simply "Eddy Louiss Trio." Although one of the cuts is "No Smoking," they definitely are! Bits of Coltrane influence make their way into Thomas' playing in places.
Getz recorded a few times with Louiss, whom he called "a genius." The best of these is probably a 2 cd set on Verve, recorded in 1971 with the group seen in the second clip, and titled "Dynasty."
Thomas was also a frequent partner of Bobby Jaspar.

As David stated, the Stan Getz double LP 'Dynasty' is a true gem, I have it on vinyl, hence the term LP instead of CD...I guess I'm still a bit old fashioned ;-)
Further recordings of interest are Guitar Groove, The Italian Session (with Chet Baker and Bobby Jaspar), and TPL, (with Jaques Pelzer).
TOE Mah looks a bit awkward to me...But I can't suggest any other pronunciation, my English is not good enough for that.
I'm from Belgium, as was René.
Thanks for bringing René in the spotlights!
